SOLCER and Transpired Solar Collector Case Studies in Wales Project Closure

15 Jul 2015

The Sustainable Building Envelope Demonstration (SBED) are hosting their final event of the project in conjunction with the launch of the Solcer House on Thursday 16th July 2015.

The SOLCER project demonstrates the building integrated systems based approach to low carbon.

The SBED project aim was to: model, test, prototype and monitor low carbon building systems incorporating transpired solar collectors (TSC) in six ‘buildings in use’ in Convergence Areas of Wales. The event will share the knowledge and experience learnt from the installation and will demonstrate how the TSCs use solar power to heat air before directing it into the building.

The Sustainable Building Envelope Demonstration (SBED) project is led by the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University, in partnership with Tata Steel.

The project’s aim was to: model, test, prototype and monitor low carbon building systems incorporating transpired solar collectors (TSC) in six ‘buildings in use’ in Convergence Areas of Wales. Building types include residential, domestic, commercial (offices or retail), industrial and institutional (schools). The event will share the knowledge and experience learnt from the installation and will demonstrate how the TSCs use solar power to heat air before directing it into the building.
